Margaret Atwood - The Handmaid's TaleThe Handmaid's Tale

Margaret Atwood

I was long overdue reading Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel; however, thirty-plus years on from publication it could not be more pertinent. A radiation-toxic atmosphere, dying planet, fear of ‘the other’, intolerance of dissenters, dehumanisation of women, abuse of power . . . A grim, but stellar read. Looking forward to reading The Testaments – the Booker-Prize winning sequel.
